and grand kids deserve it or something. cbs news asked him if he would confer with mitt romney over some issues. the president said he might if he could find the time. now, if i'm the governor, i'm not changing any plans waiting for that call. in short, this was a very relaxed press conference because happy days are are indeed here again. >> christie parson. hey. >> thank you, mr. president. and congratulations, by the way. >> thanks. christie there in -- when i was running for state senate. >> that's right, i was. >> christie and i go back a ways. >> i have never seen you lose. >> bill: talking points pretty much has seen it all on the journalism front as i told you last night. the press in america sadly is in terrible shape. i don't understand why the president doesn't do these press srcheses all the time. he completely controls the room. only henry had him stammering. you know what i really think? i think barack obama doesn't respect the national press corps because he knows they love him. he uses them. but he doesn't think much of him. i could be wrong. summing up, i learned nothing
like him to be doing it. >> the romney campaign has issued a statement of explanation. i put that in quotes. governor romney was simply elaborating on what david axelrod said about the obama campaign efforts to target key demographics specifically women. >> well, andrea, if i can quickly -- look, every campaign and candidate takes the policies that they've either put into place or would put into place and targets those two the communities they think would most benefit, would feel enthusiastic about them. that's campaign practice 101. that's why i think what mitt romney said, what he meant i leave up to him, but what he said sounds like he's accusing president obama's campaign of doing what every campaign throughout history has ever done, which is find people who are your supporters and make sure policies you've put into place you present them in the most positive possible light to those supporters to get them to vote. blaming voters is rarely a winning public relations strategy and that's why you see so many republicans jumping on and saying, whoa, mitt romney does not repres
the beginning was incredibly weak. >> absolutely. >> but i saw republicans, once romney got the nomination, partisans gathering around him and saying, oh, the mormon issue isn't going to matter. and it did matter. there are evangelicals who see mormons as a sect and not christian, and they did stay home. so my question is, in reforming the party, will republicans say to themselves, hey, wait a minute, we goofed up by not getting somebody more conservative and somebody christian who would appeal to evangelical christians. could they read the results that way? >> the right to life and the sanctity of marriage will always be a part of the platform. >> always. how smart is that? >> the mormon religion did play a role, but also, mitt romney flip-flopped on same-sex marriage, they perceived that and also the abortion issue. so evangelicals can -- >> i think the republican party has become overly dependent on its evangelicals, and the real question is do they have anybody to replace them with. once they begin to appeal more broadly as these are mostly older people, as these people pass, you reall
.e ar if the real -- is a real cultural issue. i do not think there is an easy explanation. >> another thing you said, this border who you referenced -- there were the lies romney told. you did not say writer for "the new york times." what has happened where the media and the being composite in these lies that are told because they do not want to check the person was telling a lie. tell me whether or not that has to do with fox wanted to spend its -- to spin its way. but those are -- to those of us do not want to check allies because we do not want to be accused of being partial -- the liberal media bias. to taiex the mail? >> a few brave souls do. that said, there are two things going on. the liberal so-called liberal media or mainstream media has been bullied by the facts of this world to filling if they send up and seasoning clearly that question? the other side, they will be massacred for being a liberal. that is that iowa happens. "the new yorke their * = times" did not want to see unpatriotic. maybe they're not for weapons of mass destruction. the other part is particularly in re
executive editor. you say republican governors out there have solved and confronted a lot of the issues that mitt romney was taking about or maybe not talking about. >> what is remarkable is there is so much soul searching taking place within the republican party especially on capitol hill when it's the governors that have outlined a conservative reform agenda. you look in new jersey when chris christie took office, he was able to pass even saoeultment reform, pension reform with the support of even some democrats who were initially opposed to him. you look at bobby jindal of louisiana who has taken over the republican governor's association and he was able to gain a claim for his leadership in the wake of hurricane katrina and ed indication reform. they are setting a model for how republicans can talk about the agenda in the future. jon: one of romney's arguments he made it late in the game, one of his arguments was hey i was a republican governor in a democratic state and worked with a democratic legislature to get things done. >> romney didn't talk about his central legislative achie
of the central issues during this campaign. just listen to how governor romney defended big oil on the campaign trail. >> but what we don't need is to have the president keeping us from taking advantage of oil, coal, and gas. >> on day one i'm going to act to increase the number of leases and permits to drill on federal lands. >> in fact, as the oil continued to spill in the gulf, listen to what one republican lawmaker told the ceo of bp during a hearing on capitol hill. >> i think it is a tragedy of the first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what i would characterize as a shakedown, in this case a $20 billion shakedown. but i apologize. >> the republican apologizes to bp.
criticized in israel for tilting, to say the least, in favor of governor romney. the biggest issue is what to do about iran. on the other hand, the united states has a long history of support here. actually, what's odd about it, the day-to-day intelligence relationship between the united states and israel has arguably never been closer and more intimate. it really is tight. the kind of issues we've had in the last 24 hours which is quite traditional, my hunch is that's ogg. the united states and israel can coordinate. what's also going to happen, this is now going to spread to the u.n., not just the security council. but the other palestinians. the palestinians in the west bank. the quote/unquote, more moderate palestinians. they want to increase their status and move to something like statehood there. and the real question is how do the united states and israel manage this which will make it much harder against this backdrop. it's an economic backdrop. what the administration is hoping it doesn't force us into the position where we have to isolate ourselves and simply to make sure that is
romney, and i guarantee you barack obama is not going to give at all on this issue. he's going to move on. >> whoa. look out. look out, mitt. thank you, mayor. always an incisive commentary from you. if this is the case, you're right, he better move on. thai, mayor brown of california -- san francisco. ashley, thanks for coming on. >>> it's not business, it's personal. that public dispute between john mccain and president obama over susan rice. could it be mccain hasn't gotten over the 2008 election. we're sort of stacking up revenge here on the other side. i got nothing more to say about that. >>> plus spy fall, what we're learning about the affair that brought down the cia chief and perhaps derailed the promoths of the top general. besides complaining about how president obama won re-election by giving away gifts to minorities and young voters, wonder what mitt romney has been doing since the election? david letterman has an idea. >> today mitt romney drew a picture of the house of representatives chamber and gave a state of the union address in front of it. >> and the fourth new entitl
's reelection. he made the comments in a call to top donors. romney said he believed they rode a superb campaign and focused on big issues that affected the entire country. >>> a florida restaurant owner is taking criticism for the obama care to the next level. john metz, who owns several denny's said he will add a 5% surcharge to customers's bills in 2014. he said passing on the cost of obama care to customers is his only alternative to a potential rise in health care costs. he said he will cut the hours of many full-time employees to under 30 hours to avoid a penalty he would face for not insuring some of his workers. >>> two weeks after hurricane sandy slammed into the east coast, president obama heads into the damaged zone for a second time. today he will visit staten island to evaluate recovery efforts there. it's his first visit to sandy's impact zone in about two weeks when the president toured parts of new jersey with governor chris christie. >>> and the president's visit comes as two of the biggest utility companies face investigation into how well they prepared and responded to superst
frustrated that mitt romney didn't talk about this enough. i talked to republicans who admit that they were trying to make it an issue now. >> yeah, he really pushed back on john mccain and lind say graham and called it outragious he said if you have a problem take it up with me. i think he was very testy today. and what he was doing was saying okay you want to make this an issue buddy, dare me to nominate her. it sounded to me, reading between the lines. it is something that he is interested in doing. this is a political fight that is not going to go away. i think one thing that struck me is that the president talked about going after her because she is quote an easy target. what does that mean? is it because she is a woman and is the only one out there using the information that she had? it is interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president is talking about. >> there is still so many thing that is we don't know. is it surprising that they are going after secretary of state rice and not clinton? >> no, i don't. right now, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they
>> would you just say what you mean to say? >> always do. >> come on. >> you don't have an issue with that. may sound like sour grapes as mitt romney tried to explain his election day loss. >> while talking to some of his biggest donors wednesday, romney kind of echoed his 47% remark suggesting the president bought his re-election victory. here is abc's david muir. >> reporter: mitt romney leaving his hotel the day after the election. next to the convention center where he hoped to deliver the one speech he had written. his victory speech. but now in the week since the election, abc news has learned mitt romney has been explaining his loss to his closest advisers and top donors and it started at a breakfast the very next morning. perhaps his most eye opening explanations yet during his conference call with a larger group of donors. romney arguing president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financia
. again, fast eddie here. i will let him speak. shall we? >> now mitt romney has created some problems for himself when it comes to immigration, when it comes to women's issues that have nothing to do with vaginal management, apparently they are going to equal pay for women. i am getting more burned up, the more i think about it. all right. now this is the locker room today. if this is too much for you, don't listen to the radio show. i am warning you. women! are you awake?! do you know what in thradical outfit wants to do to your rights in the workplace? do you want them managing your vagina? do you want them rolling back women's rights 50 years? i don't know! i am just asking you the question. [laughter] >> sean: i don't know whether to laugh or cry. war on women? >> a little of both. it's interesting, why would a guy talk like that on the radio? you want to reflect that? just out of tackiness or i don't know what the right term is. why would you even go there? you know. there is something wrong with the guy. >> sean: as we move forward, how much material have you accumulated that pr
the re-elected president weighs in on your taxes, the petraeus scandal and issues a blazing challenge to those criticizing his u.n. ambassador on benghazi. >> you want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >>> romney's revelation. what he said today about blacks, hispanics and why he thinks obama really won. >>> made in america. would a big corporate giant like sears take your idea and have it made in china? this small town inventor says yes and tries to take them on. >>> and fakeout. what is he doing? was he really pushed? how about him? the crackdown tonight. >>> good evening. we begin with the president. eight days after his re-election energized and diving straight into the headlines. at his first press conference today, he talked about the scandal that took down the head of the cia, the looming fiscal crisis that could raise taxes for everyone on january 1st and then, he came out swinging in defense of one member of his team. and abc's jonathan karl was right there in that room asking questions. jon? >> reporter: diane, this was a confident president today, eag
york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one manned day. i' -- mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and people trying to get to the middle class. >> the president dry drawas line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question is are we going to hold the middle class hostage. >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rally be cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. plus the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senator. >> yes, you did. >> heidi highcamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >> good to yo
romney getting on stage saying, we love women! that was the attempt by her and her husband to bring women voters into the fold because of some of the issues so glaring regarding the republican party. >> sure. in the last closing commercial was that woman jogging pushing the baby stroller. look, they don't get it. the romney campaign didn't get it. the governor, as much as i add hire him for what he's done in public life, he showed his true color in the 47% speech, and he showed them again. these aren't gifts. when you give young people the right to go to college and pay less on their student loan, that's not a gift. that's an opportunity. that's the right thing, eliminating the middle man. when you give women access to contraceptives, that's not a gift. that's the right thing. that's good public policy. i mean, it boggles the mind he considers those things gifts, any more than if the federal gives relief to new jersey and new york from hurricane sandy. is that a gift or is that a helping hand? >> people compare this to the 47% comment he made again behind closed doors with wealthy people.
about by the president. what does business want on these two issues? >> you know what, i think despite all of their backing of mitt romney who of course wanted to cut their taxes. i think in reality leaders of wall street as was poibtd nted yesterday, are prepared to pay more in taxes. i hear that wherever i go. wealthy people are willing to pay more in taxes. they also want to see it combined with prudent spending cuts that show fiscal responsibility. you know, don't forget bill crystal said last week on fox that when taxes were raised in the reagan administration, he didn't say when taxes were raised in the clinton administration. the economy took off. so i think leaders -- >> it's possible. it's definitely possible. >> talk about the spirit of compromise that he had mentioned. what does the president get here out of this in if he gets business leaders on board to get republicans to deal? if he gets them on board, will it force republicans to deal? >> we've seen repeatedly the republicans are seen on their own planetary orbit. if you get wealthy americans to say to them that you have
on the right side of the issue, according to you? >> mitt romney doesn't speak for me. mitt romney is yesterday's news. he is no longer the candidate. he is no longer the nominee. i think somebody like bobby jindahl is more representative of the republican party. he is a sitting governor. is he the head of the republican governor's association. i think you're going to hear more voices on this like jeb bush, like a marco rubio, like lindsey gram, like john mccain, people w are going to have a much more vocal and big role in the republican party, and are going to be part of this new conversation. you know, mitt romney, i think he was just trying to make an excuse to his donors who have given him a lot of money on why he had lost, and it's easier to make an excuse and blame it on somebody else than to blame it on your own shortcomings. >> all right. we're ing aveo le i ere. i will see how the party braise itself together and attracts, you know, latinos and brings you back. you're still in the fold there, but clearly very upset with mitt romney's take on all of this. thank you, anna. good to see yo
compromising in washington because they support the same issues. they do not support the people that passed out the money. policies never change. i think the rhetoric is difference. obama had a more sensible foreign policy approach in this last election. romney wanted to increase the military budget by $2 trillion. the policies are exactly the same. i would be a bipartisan in blaming both sides for this. the fiscal cliff is the same problem. look at what the conservatives do when the republicans are in charge. the spending continues. the federal reserve keeps on bailing out the rich. republicans defended the rich. they both defend welfare for the rich. they bailout the very wealthy and the bankers in this crisis. but the people lost jobs and they lost their houses. if we can blame the democrats or the republicans for the problems, we are not going to solve the major crises we are involved in. host: we have a question on twitter. guest: no, i don't. republicans and democrats are in charge. they have control of the system. we send kids to afghanistan and iraq. we do not have real freedom here. if
was going to receive them. romney wanted to give gifts to the rich. obama wanted to give to the middle class and the poor. that debate was decided. it wasn't an issue of gifts. it was who is going to pay for the gifts. a lot of the gifts that obama gave, like obama care, could have given money back to taxpayers through deficit reduction, three reducing health care expenses, student loans the same thing. took the cost out of student loans to taxpayers. the gifts that romney wanted to give to the rich supposedly would have come back to us expanding the economy though there was no evidence of that. romney's gift would have cost taxpayers money. obama's gift saved taxpayers money. >> talk about the splintering inside the republican party or what seems to be happening, you're a supporter of the jindal position which is more tolerant, less coated in racial rhetoric, do you think there's room in the republican party for both of these kinds of voices which is to say, one group of people which is you know karl rove is doubling down saying conservatives shouldn't abandon principles what they need to w
, that there were very frustrated that mitt romney didn't talk about this enough. they felt it was a way to get at president obama's leadership. and i talked to republicans who admit they are trying to make it an issue now. >> you saw a different president obama. >> yeah, he really pushed back on john mccain and lindsey graham and called it outrageous that they would make these charges about her, that she knowingly disseminated false information. he said look, if you have a problem, take it up with me. in his own way, he was very testy today, and in his own way, he was saying to john ccain, you want to make this an issue, buddy? dare me to nominate her. it really sounded like in reading between the lines that this is something he's interested in doing this is a political fight that's not going to go away. one thing that struck me, the president talked about going after her, because she's "an easy target." well, what does that mean? because she's a woman, the only one out there using the information she had? it's interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president was talking about. >> ther
, i think that we're going to see benghazi only get bigger. if governor romney had won, it would disappear as an issue. however, i think you're going to see the g.o.p. try to use it as much as they can. and again it is disgusting. i think that everyone out there listening has the right-winger who watches fox who they work with and their vocabulary is noun verb benghazi. i think one of the growing challenges for progressives in the weeks to come is going to be how do we get the facts to talk about benghazi because i don't think the progressive media has done enough. i don't think the mainstream media has done enough to talk about what's actually going on there. i think the story is going to revolve quite a bit but can we play governor romney really quickly? this is from yesterday. i think this is the most telling thing he said in quite awhile. mitt romney made his first public comments since losing the election in a telephone conference with his donors and some really fascinating content. let's play that. >
on that issue, as well. and he said again he wants to meet with the man he defeated last week. >> i-- i'm sure that governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is, before the end of the year, though, that we have a chance to-- to sit down and talk. you know, there-- there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. >> reporter: no word on when such a meeting could take place. >> ifill: in case you missed it, you can watch the complete news conference on our web site. coming up, more from the president's first post-election news conference on the investigation into the generals' scandal and his second-term agenda. plus, israeli air strikes in gaza and one family's battle with meningitis. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the president's challenge to republicans today on taxes sets up a new confrontation in congress. even before the white house news conference, senate minority lead
